Week 10, Part 1. We drove up to San Francisco and spent a few days exploring the city. This is Day One.
While I love the ease of the Design A pockets, sometimes a collage of square photos is even easier to put together. Weeks when you only have photos or don’t want to worry about choosing a photo based on whether it’s a portrait or landscape orientation. The square is the great equalizer. These photos are all from Day One – everything from being on the road, to checking into the hotel, to exploring the city, a simple visual summary of that first day.
The other side is a 12×12 layout (quick page from Curated No. 4 & 5 kit).
Both 12×12 pages were done created digitally and printed at Persnickety Prints.
Project Life is a memory keeping system created by Becky Higgins. Read more about it HERE. All of my project life entries can be found HERE. Photos edited using either RadLab by Get Totally Rad! or VSCO
The weather was perfect. (photo taken using the InstaWeather App).
And Madeline finally got to meet here all-time favorite bear. Definitely the best moment of the day.
Happy Weekending friends!
All photos taken with the IPhone and edited using PicTapGo or VSCO.
I am super excited about a new class coming out this summer at Big Picture Classes, The Phone Photography Project. I’m also beyond thrilled and honored to be one of the guest instructors for this class. The goal of this class is all about the camera phone – how to take better pictures with your camera phone, how to make the most out of those phone apps you downloaded, how to incorporate what you’re documenting on your camera into your memory keeping workflow. More often than not these days we are reaching for our camera phones to document our daily lives. I know it’s certainly true for me. If you’ve found yourself thinking, “I wish I could take better photos with my camera phone” or wanting to do something fun and creative with the photos you’ve taken, then this might be just the class you’ve been looking for!

I made this layout tonight. Well technically, I just slapped a photo + words onto this quick page designed by Amy Martin and called it done.
Journaling: I love how close the two of you are. Yes, you have many moments throughout the day – bickering, tattling on each other – but for the most part, the two of you get along grandly. I hope you will grow up to be the best of friends, that you will be each other’s biggest fan and advocate, that you will go to football games together, go shopping together, consult each other before making big decisions, be there for each other during the challenging times and that you will call each other to say hello “just because”.
Did you make anything over NSD weekend?
A look at my newest completed 12×12 photobook. This one took approximately 6 – 8 hours to put together. About 80% off that time was spent on selecting and editing photos. The actual design part was easy because I used quick pages (pre-designed layouts) from the Curated No. 4 & 5 Album Kit and simply paired each layout with a large photo on the opposite side to make a 2 page spread.
about this photobook
- 20 pages, 12×12 size, printed at Shutterfly.
- Curated No. 4 & 5 Album Kit
I’ve got one more new product in the shop for NSD, a collaboration with the amazing Amy Martin. I have been a forever fan of Amy’s amazing scrapbooking style – the way she works white space and messy stitches…and creates the most amazing realistic looking shadows always leaves me in awe. So of course I was thrilled when she suggested that we collaborate on an album kit – which basically means that she works her magic and creates pages using my products. And you know what that means for the rest of us? With these quick pages, we can make amy-esque layouts…pretty much in an instant!
If you’re pressed for time (who isn’t these days?) and are looking for a quick and easy way to get your photos documented….in a beautifully designed, minimalist way, this collection of quick pages is a must have!
The sets are available for purchase separately, or you can purchase the bundle and save more. This weekend only, enjoy a 44% savings on the bundle.
